President Obama issued a message today, February 22, to all Christians around the nation celebrating Ash Wednesday:

“Today, Michelle and I honor Ash Wednesday with Christians around the country and across the world. This is at once a solemn and joyous occasion, an opportunity to remember both the depths of sacrifice and the height of redemption.  We join millions in entering the Lenten Season with truly thankful hearts, mindful of our faith and our obligations to one another.”

This comes at a time when his GOP opponents are using religion as a major topic in the campaign.

The Republican field, particularly Romney and Gingrich, stated they will repeal the administration’s rule requiring church-owned and religiously-supported hospitals and organizations to offer birth control options to their employees.
